We explore the legacy of Armin Medosch's work from the perspective of
"free research". Long before artistic research became a fundable
category, Armin engaged in a various independent, non-institutional
research endeavors at the intersection of art, media and politics: from
navigating the Baltic Sea on the MS Stubnitz to building open
mesh-networks in London, exploring media piracy in Taiwan to
contributing to the history of early media art in Croatia and
internationally and to developing the Timeline - Tracing Information
Society with TECHNOPOLITICS, a free research group in Vienna.What can we
take from his particular approach of developing a free research as
interdisciplinary practice for the future?
